Call for papers
TOOLS EUROPE 2008 will focus on the combination of technologies that have emerged through objects and object technology becoming mainstream. TOOLS EUROPE 2008 combines an emphasis on quality with a strong practical focus.
This is the 46th TOOLS conference. Started in 1989, TOOLS conferences, held in Europe, the USA, Australia, China and Eastern Europe, have played a major role in the development of object technology field; many of the seminal concepts were first presented at TOOLS. The TOOLS series was successfully restarted in 2007.
Contributions are solicited on all aspects of object technology and neighbouring fields, in particular model-based development, component-based development, and patterns (design, analysis and other applications); more generally, any contribution addressing topics in advanced software technology fall within the scope of TOOLS. Reflecting the practical emphasis of TOOLS, contributions showcasing applications along with a sound conceptual contribution are particularly welcome.
Hereafter follows a non-exclusive list of potential topics:
- Object technology, including object-oriented programming techniques, languages, and tools
- Testing of object-oriented systems
- Patterns, pattern languages, tool support for patterns
- Distributed and concurrent object systems
- Real-time object-oriented programming and design
- Experience reports, including efforts at standardisation and applications to safety- and security-related software
- Component-based programming, modelling, tools
- Aspects and aspect-oriented programming and modelling
- Frameworks for component-based development
- Trusted and reliable components
- Model-driven development and Model-Driven Architecture
- Domain specific languages and language design
- Tools and frameworks for supporting model-driven development
In 2008, TOOLS EUROPE will be co-located with several other events,
including SEAFOOD 2008 and the International Conference on Model
Transformation (ICMT) 2008. Details of co-located events can be found on the
TOOLS web site.
All contributions will be subject to a rigorous selection process by the international Program Committee, with a stress on originality, practicality and overall quality. Every paper will be reviewed by at least 4 committee members. The acceptance rate will be published in the conference proceedings; TOOLS is committed to a fair and extensive peer-review process establishing a high standard in the area of modern practices in software engineering.
The proceedings of TOOLS Europe 2008 will be a volume in the new Springer series LNBIP (Lecture Notes in Business and Information Processing).
This series has a focus on patterns and components, and has an excellent editorial board. See Springer's LNBIP web site for more details.
Final camera-ready submissions should be at most 20 pages in length in LNBIP format. We recommend that you use this format for preparing your initial submission.
By submitting a paper to TOOLS, authors warrant that the work is original and that the paper or a similar contribution is neither published nor considered for publication elsewhere.
For submissions, please use this EasyChair page.
The deadline for technical papers has been extended to February 14, 2008.
TOOLS EUROPE will also include workshops and tutorials. See the
corresponding calls for contributions.
